Acclaimed as one of the most important and exciting heritage developments in Nova Scotia, the Hector Heritage Quay (pronounced “key”), located on the scenic Pictou waterfront, offers visitors a unique glimpse into the journey of early Scottish settlers to Nova Scotia and their life in the new world. The proud centerpiece of the award-winning attraction is a full-scale reproduction of the tall ship Hector that is renowned for bringing the first wave of Scottish immigrants to Nova Scotia in 1773. It was this historic voyage that established Pictou as the “Birthplace of New Scotland”. The site also features a working blacksmith shop, rigger’s shop, carpentry shop, ¬†and Ship Hector Company Store. The Hector Heritage Quay and Ship Hector attraction is a spectacular tribute to Pictou’s proud Scottish heritage and a stop not to be missed on your visit to Nova Scotia. Please visit the Hector Heritage Quay Website for more information.
